mcdonnell beat crh deeds, and more importantly, independent voters went for barack obama, and they voted for mcdonnell. and the same thing was true in new jersey. independent voters favored chris christie over jon corzine by a two-one margin in new jersey, as well, and this should sound alarm bells, because that should reflect on president obama's performance and a resounding rejection of his agenda. but guess what? they think it was just great. nancy pelosi decided to block out these two losses and concentrate on the seat that the democrats picked up. >> we picked up one in california and one in new york. sean: wow, she sounds convincing, does she not? now, joining me more with what the republican victories mean for those states and america at large, newt gingrich joins me. you have to give her credit for trying, right? >> she has to try because she has a huge vote coming up, trying to pass the socialist health bill. i think on saturday. they are going to keep them in. she is desperate to get it through before the country rises in total rebellion against the house. the most dangerous th

obama won just a year ago, governor, what do you think of what's happened there tonight? >> well, it's an out and out rout here in virginia. it's a rout because bob mcdonnell's campaign on common sense conservative principles on economic issues, jobs, energy, transportation, education, and those ideas resonated not only with the united republican party but also got a lot of independents to join with us as well. so it's a great message across the country that virginians are standing strong for freedom rather than debt, taxes and rationing and taxing of energy. sean: looks like you are having too much fun there, governor. >> yeah, well, we are. sean: as we look at this race, this is a rout here in virginia, in a state that barack obama won by six points. what's your interpretation of this? >> sean, there is no question about it. we are having a tremendous victory here tonight. what's interesting is that bob mcdonnell ran a positive solutions-based campaign. clearly the voters of the commonwealth have rejected the policies of the barack obama white house, of the nancy pelosi-led congres
